I was feeling heavy in my heart and mind… (How to recharge and recenter in these times)

I was feeling heavy in my heart and mind… (How to recharge and recenter in these times)

I realized that I had lost my center by constantly checking the updates of the current crisis.

Every time I was checking the updates of the Coronavirus in the US, in France, and in the world, I just could not stop myself from reading and reading more about it. It was as if a spider has taken me in its web, and I could not untangle myself from it. I was glued in it.

On Friday afternoon, I was feeling heavy in my heart and mind, as if a big dark cloud was hanging over me.
…like the gloom of the world has taken over me.

It felt like my mind was pulled away in so many directions.
…like my mind was not my own anymore.

and that I could not focus on the things I want to create in my life now.

I realized that I needed a break to recenter and come back to being the creator of my life.

Here is what I’m doing this weekend:

– I’m NOT checking ANY news or updates about the coronavirus for 2 full days at least.
– I’m taking the time to meditate, read, and journal.
– I’m writing and sharing all the amazing things I’m grateful for in my life. They are so many.
– I’m going for luscious walks in nature.
– I’m connecting with friends, family, and community through Zoom, phone calls, messages, Facebook.
– I’m being of support to people in my life who need my love and presence.
– I also attended a fun dance party on Zoom with friends.
– I asked friends on Facebook to post funny/silly memes so that I could laugh out loud.

Tonight, as I write this, I’m feeling:

– refreshed and recentered.
– lighter, with joy and gratitude in my heart.
– clear-minded about what is happening in the world and what I can do best to help.
– armed with a fresh perspective about this crisis and the blessings and rebirth that will come from it
– empowered to be an active creator of my life.

What about you?

Are you taking the time to refresh and recenter in these times?

If so, what are you doing?

If not, this is TIME! unless you want to let the events of the world be in the driver seat of your life.

This is SO important… always, but EVEN MORE so now.

Recharge and recenter, so that:
… you don’t let yourself be pulled away every moment of the day by the flow of intense news.
… you don’t let the external events dictate your life.
… you don’t lose your center, your creative force.
… you don’t let the gloom of the world colors your internal state.

Recharge and recenter, so that:
… you come back to your center.
… you connect back to your gratitude for life.
… you stay in the driver seat of your life.
… you create what you are here to create.

Be gentle with yourself.

What we are facing is unprecedented in our lifetime, and we are all learning how to be with it.

I’m learning too and doing it imperfectly.

Love and blessings to you and your loved ones,

Isabelle

P.S. I hope you and everyone around you is well. Here in California, we have a shelter-in-place order for 3 weeks at least.

This is a BIG week for me… and how to refocus your energy in times like these

This is a BIG week for me… and how to refocus your energy in times like these

In the past few days, my attention has been pulled towards and literally “sucked into” the current health concerns in the world. To the point where it has been hard NOT to think about it constantly or to stop checking articles about it, and focus my attention elsewhere.

I’m giving myself lots of grace around it. (and I invite you to do the same) The atmosphere around it is quite intense. 

I don’t regret it as I’m learning what I need to learn so that I can act from LOVE to be of support to family, friends, and our big Human family.

However, this week is a BIG week for me in terms of sharing my message out and stepping into BIGGER visibility. I’ll be Interviewed on Facebook Live and on a TV show; I just launched my new website.

So, I realized I needed to find a way to FOCUS back on what I’m up to in the world and pull my attention away from the trance we are getting lost into.

This afternoon, I made the decision to take a break from checking or discussing the virus, to focus on the preparation of the two interviews I have this week.

Two hours into preparing them and connecting with the core of the message I want to share and why the world needs to hear it, and I felt my JUICE and EXCITEMENT back again!!

I was connected back to my PURPOSE on this planet and why I’m so PSYCHED about it.

My inspiration was flowing and several times, I got myself saying out loud: “There is a BOOK here that needs to written!” “I’ve a BOOK that wants to come out of me.”

My message needs to be shared more broadly in the world to help more people.

So, what can you do today to move your attention away from the current situation, take a break from it, and connect with JOY and INSPIRATION again?

  • It starts with making a conscious decision to do it and to focus on something else that brings you joy, and let yourself dive into it.
  • …and to STOP checking news, articles, and such for a little while, even if it is just for an afternoon or a day.

Try it even just for a little while and let me know how that goes. 

With love,
Isabelle

P.S. I’m excited to announce I’ll be interviewed this Wednesday at 10 am PT on this awesome Facebook Live show. Watch the interview live at facebook.com/the3burns

I’ve the best boss ever! (Birthday pics inside)

I’ve the best boss ever! (Birthday pics inside)

I have the best boss ever! 😜

For my Birthday today, she rescheduled my clients’ sessions so that I could bask in the glory of my special day and treat myself. 

which means: 

  • Sleep in
  • Stay in my pj’s for how long as I want
  • Receive and bask in all the love from family and friends (video calls, texts, messages, Facebook messages)
  • Order a delicious French meal for lunch, delivered to my doorstep


This is an intense time of expansion in my business and in my life, and I’m grateful I got to rest and treat myself today. 

So that I can be rejuvenated to be of best service to my clients and to keep evolving and growing. 

I cannot serve well if my tank is empty. You cannot either. 

We serve and give the best when our tank is full. 

I love my boss and she loves me. 

Here she is! 😉 

Why am I sharing that with you?

So that you get reminded that treating yourself, self-care, and taking the time to receive are key elements of a fulfilled, happy, and successful career and life

especially in this ultra-productive and busy environment we live in.

Take the time to stop and take care of yourself. You deserve it. 

What are you going to do to treat yourself, or what are you already doing?

Let me know. I’d love to hear. Comment below.

With love,

Isabelle

Can you relate?

Can you relate?

I just had a fabulous Zoom call with a successful VP of a company who is ready to discover her true calling and reinvent her career to do what she loves.

She wants to be her own boss and feel good about the contribution she is making in the world; she just does not know in which area and what her purpose is.

It’s what I’m going to help her with!

I love helping go-getters who are up to something big in the world and need help to clarify what that is!

Is that you?

Or maybe someone you know (spouse, relative, friend, co-worker, client)?
